This is my first blog and hopefully i will keep up with it!! Time will be my biggest issue i think but thats probably everyones excuse.
I wanted to start a blog to help spread the word about 2 things 1) Folksy and handmade. Folksy.com is a great site and gives people like me (hobby crafters) a chance to share their passion and make some money from what they love and for self employed proffessional crafters to share their wares with a wider audience. Its great! You can get this and that and everything else at great prices and its unique hand made and really lovely.
Reason 2) too share a little about me and Chloe and our lovely life. Chloe's 2 and a half and small and fluffy and ace.
She was born with some heart and brain malformations which mean lots of doctors and some pretty complex learning difficulties. We recently found out she has a genetic disorder called Mowat-Wilson Syndrome, it's the name thats given to the issues caused when there is a deletion or mutation in a certain gene. So i am at home with beany trying to teach her about the world and in the process trying to keep my sanity by making beatiful things!!
Anyone with kids will tell you, you need to have something thats for you, to keep you sane! Mine is fabric and buttons and beads and boxes.
So thats us for now. I plan to try and do Folksy Friday and bring you a themed selection of lovely lovely fings from my fellow crafters.
p.s - sorry if the spollings is awful!!
